What type of camshaft is best suited for use with nitrous oxide?
Generally, cams that have less exhaust overlap and more exhaust duration. However, it is best to choose a cam tailored to normal use (when nitrous is not activated) since 99 percent of vehicle operation is not at full throttle. There are special cam grinds available for nitrous-equipped competition engines which have more aggressive exhaust profile ramping. Since cam selection depends largely on vehicle weight, gearing, etc., it is best to stick to the cam manufacturer's recommendations for your particular goal.
